Former Muslim Canadian Council President Publishes Book about Islam and Anti-Semitism

The Toronto Star – November 19, 2010

“One would expect Muslims to denounce the depiction of their Prophet as a mass murderer,” Fatah writes in The Jew Is Not My Enemy: Unveiling the Myths that Fuel Anti-Semitism (272 pages, McClelland & Stewart , 2010). Fatah calls himself a secular Muslim and ranks as one of Canada’s most fearless critics of Islamism — the ideology that promotes Islam as a political system as well as a religion. Two years ago, he published Chasing a Mirage: The Tragic Illusion of an Islamic State arguing that when Muslims buried the Prophet they also buried many of his values.The problem, the author says, is that Islam lacks a tradition of questioning religious texts.
